ivf journey and infertility

Postby truffs » Mon Sep 04, 2017 2:08 pm

Hi,

I'm new to this forum, i'll introduse myself. Five years ago my husband and I while living in France at the time got married and said we'd ttc. Two years on and no signs of conception so we decided to see a gynecologist. We did every single test possible and the two of us are fertile and healthy no problems so our infertility is "unexplained". Which is very frustrating I'm sure there are others out there like us unexplained apparently it's not that rare anymore. The past few years have been stressful and frustrating and there we're lots of tears. Last year we decided to see a specialist after moving home and as the gynecologist couldnt do anymore. We had one failed attempt at IUI last year and over 6 weeks ago started IVF. It has taken really long, I started on the sniffer but my body was not reacting well to it and didnt accept it. I therefor had to have an injection to replace it think its called "decapeptyl". I had loads of scans when i went back for the scan after the decapeptyl there was something wrong with one of the follicles and i needed a procedure done called a "follicle aspiration" which i was lightly sedated for. I didnt really like the drug they gave me it made the room spin felt a bit like i was drunk so wasnt too bad just wierd lol. I eventually had the egg collection a week or two ago now and was really nervous for that as the doctors we're saying it's gonna be painful and i'll be drugged and i'll admit to having a strange phobia of being drugged afraid of the effects of the drugs if i dont know what its gonna be like but actually with the valium it felt great i was on cloud nine and would say to any woman afraid like i was don't be, really it wasn't to bad. That day my hushand gave his sample and the doctor called every day with the news on how the embryos we're developping. Out of 11 embryos there was only one that made it to blastocyst stage. One that had previously develloped abnormally (2-5) so had an extra cell that it got rid of at the merula stage though. So i had the transfer was the day before yesterday and my pregnancy test is in two weeks and i'm not that positive about it. I'm so annoyed as apparently theres only 30 to 40 % chance of it working and that's because aswell we're young. I have no idea what to think and am upset and dissapointed about the results of the embryos failing to get to the correct stage. The doctor said if it doesnt work we could have chromosone testing as she thinks it could possibly be that or sperm fragmentation testing. Has anyone had the chromosone testing is this rare? feeling hopeless and like we'll never have kids :| :(

I can understand your problem dear. I am in the same situation as you. I was TTCing for 3 years but nothing happened. Before that, I was conceived 3 times. But my babies were tubal. I cannot make it till the end. My life became very depressed. My husband was supporting me in this regard. IVF was very painful for me. I found no luck in it. I am now planning for surrogacy. Some of the clinics are really authenticated. They are also offering good prices.

Thanks for the reply. What range is the price for surrogacy? I have not the slightest idea. I took my pregnancy test two days ago well two of them and i am pregnant :D :). We have a long road ahead of us though so fingers crossed all goes well. We have our first scan the 4th of october so i pray this will go ok. This is my first time pregnant and i am nervous i want to be happy but suppose am anxious to get the results of our first scan. Have you started the process already for surrogacy? Infertility is such an emotional journey that men don't really understand the same as us. Can I ask if you're aware of anything blocking you fertile whise? I am in the unexplained catagory and the doctors said it could possibly be a chromosone problem but we would need to be tested for that.

A few friends of mine did PGS NGS (chromosome screening), and got pregnant. If you want to know more, pm

I am happy that you people are also aware of surrogacy. I am also infertile. I was pregnant when I met a bad road accident. I lost my 11 weeks unborn in that journey. I was in the coma for 9 days. After that, doctors declared me infertile. This was really painful for me. I was so emotional and have the long crying session. My husband also loves children a lot. He was also worried. We are planning for surrogacy. My friend has a good experience in Ukraine. She was saying they are reliable for surrogacy.

its sad that you suffered from all this. You has so many unsuccessful attempts but don't loose hope. Hope changes everything. The failed IUI and IVF can be because various health issues and ageing. I suggest you to change your clinic. Give yourself a new start, have complete health tests and decide something after results. Moreover, A chromosomal karyotype is used to detect chromosome abnormalities and thus used to diagnose genetic diseases, some birth defects, and certain disorders of the blood or lymphatic system. A chromosome analysis is done when a fetus is suspected of having a chromosomal abnormality, when an infant has congenital abnormalities, when a woman experiences miscarriages or infertility, and there are signs of a genetic disorder. If you have any of the symptoms or signs, then tell it to your new clinic first. There are many clinics which provide positive results in cases like yours. There is nothing like you can't get pregnant. Every problem has solution so, don't be disheartened, and give yourself a chance again. Good Luck.
